Hagel emerges with solid Dem support for Pentagon

WASHINGTON (AP) Bruised and battered, Chuck Hagel emerged from his grueling confirmation hearing with solid Democratic support for his nomination to be President Barack Obama's next defense secretary and relentless opposition from Republicans who repeatedly challenged their former GOP colleague.

Mathematically, Hagel has the edge as he looks to succeed Defense Secretary Leon Panetta as the nation's 24th Pentagon chief. Democrats hold a 14-12 advantage on the Senate Armed Services Committee, and Chairman Carl Levin, D-Mich., said the panel could vote as early as next Thursday, contingent on Hagel's prompt response on some lingering questions.

How can representatives of the people be on opposite sides of a decision/question based on their political association... us against them or them against us.

I watched too much of Hagel's grilling and he flew through it like a duck with two broken wings. He spent a major portion of his time shakeing his Etch-A-Sketch... he did not appear to be an honest person.

If democrats all back this guy... they are either stupid or dishonest, either way they are a threat to the UnUnited States of America.:steamed:
